Webinars

Applied Flow Technology offers introductory Webinars about our software. These presentations are one hour long and are ideal for people who are evaluating AFT products.

Modeling Heat Exchangers in Fathom

Thursday, March 5, 2015
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MST
Cost: FREE

AFT Fathom offers you the capability to model heat exchangers, with both, hot and cold cycle thermally connected. Join us to learn how to use this capability!

AFT Arrow - Compressible Flow Modeling

Friday, March 20, 2015
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MDT
Cost: FREE

We’ll provide an overview of how to model your compressible system using AFT Arrow software. From the basics of building and defining your model, to sizing compressors, understanding system behavior related to sonic choking and more. Although this webinar is introductory in nature, we’ll touch on some of the critical aspects of a robust software package capable of dealing with gas flow systems.

Exporting Forces from Impulse to CAESAR II

Wednesday, April 1, 2015 
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MST
Cost: Free

Being able to export the transient forces to a pipe stress program, is critical when your system needs to comply with the allowable stresses stablished by the design code. Join us to learn how to use this important feature in AFT Impulse!

AFT Fathom (Add-On Modules Emphasis)

Tuesday, April 14, 2015
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MDT
Cost: FREE

This webinar adds to the introductory ‘Fathom – Incompressible Flow’ webinar by introducing the following modules:

  • Goal Seek and Control (GSC)
  • Extended Time Simulation (XTS)
  • Settling Slurry (SSL)

Scenario Manager

Thursday, April 30, 2015
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MDT
Cost: FREE

When designing a hydraulic network, there are many operating conditions that need to be considered in the design in order to assure the proper functioning of system. To help with this task, AFT programs allow you to create sub-models within a model with a feature called “Scenario Manager”. Join us in this learn how to use this important feature.

AFT Impulse - Waterhammer: A Surge Analysis

Monday, May 11, 2015
10:00 AM -11:00 AM MDT
Cost: FREE

During this session we'll provide an overview of the surge analysis capabilities of Impulse.  We'll demonstration how transients are initiated and animate the pressure vs time profiles for three different scenarios:

  • pump startup 
  • pump trip
  • valve closure

We'll also explore how to export unbalanced force files for stress analysis in CAESAR II.
